Now, that's not the actor Will Smith, right?

Hopefully Mauer doesn't miss more than a couple games.

These are the Twins. LaVelle says already he's guessing the whole series.

I betcha he forces Gardy to put him in no later than Wednesday - he's on a mission to prove to the fans here that he's not injury prone and tough enough to play through minor ailments.

I admit to being fascinated that Butera is not the catcher....

I would rather see him rest a couple days rather than rush back and injure the thumb even more. But you're right, I think he is out to prove he's more durable this year.

Willingham gets things started with a 2-run bomb. Twins offense needs to put up a big number tonight.

Good first inning for DeVries - slightly more pitches than I like, but solid start.

Try to swing a bat with a sprained thumb...then try to do it in the big leagues!

Dozier could probably use an off day.

The few times DeVries keeps the ball in the infield, the Twins fielders can't make a routine play. Embarrassing..

Does anyone still think Casilla has a future? Over 1000 ABs, and he still can't hit or field. He's just not good.

Morneau crushes one. That was a no-doubter.

He makes some nice plays then makes horrible errors. And his hitting is mediocre. But until we get someone better, he needs to play.

Nice homer. Morneau is swinging a hot bat right now! We need it! 2 run lead isnt enough though

I agree. He probably has no real future with the team, but right now he's the best they can do.

Nice HRs for Morneau and Plouffe. Great comeback from a bad 4th inning. With all the high draft picks that the Royals have enjoyed, you would think that their pitching would be better.
